"With the guys by my side, we wandered outside to the silence of the night under the beautiful moonlight. They showered me with praise and told me how strong I was. I shared my fears with them, and they held me up as the walk brought on very strong contractions."
"I was so scared that something was going to go wrong. I had never read about a placenta abrasion and wasn’t really able to process that everything was going to be OK because of the overwhelming way the contractions so quickly sped up and gained momentum."
"At 1:30 p.m. we got good news and bad news: I was 8 centimeters dilated, but the baby was sunny side up. The doctor had me change positions again to try to get the baby to flip. I kept moving into different positions, but our baby stubbornly refused to turn over."
